West never imposed anything on Armenia – Secretary of Security Council reacts to 
Russia’s criticism

YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 14, ARMENPRESS. The West hasn’t imposed anything on Armenia, Secretary of the Security Council Armen Grigoryan told reporters when asked to comment on Russia’s criticism on the deployment of the EU monitoring mission in Armenia.

“No one can impose anything on us. In this context, the West hasn’t imposed anything on us. The deployment of that mission was the Armenian side’s decision. I can say that the arrival of that mission is interrelated also with our experience. I mean that in May and November of 2021 an attack against the sovereign territory of Armenia took place, a large-scale attack took place also in September last year. And given the experience that the existing security guarantees aren’t functioning, Armenia invited the EU civilian mission with the purpose of creating some security guarantees,” Grigoryan said.

“Naturally we are regularly speaking with our Russian partners on all existing issues, and we are presenting the Armenian side’s approaches, explaining why we’ve made these steps,” Grigoryan said.
